Prim Quilt Swap

 Good morning from rainy, windy and very overcast Marquette.  We finally got a chance to come up and visit my son and his family.  It rained coming up, overnight, and now today.  It's okay because we get to visit.

Now the quilty stuff.  I belong to a Facebook group called "Prim Folk Art Quilts".  Recently they had a quilt swap.  We were to make a Prim quilt with flowers.  It was to be between 15" to 20".   It sounded like fun so I signed up.

Here is the quilt I made.


The center flower pot is a design by Cheri Payne, from her pattern Camp Quilts.  I designed the border.  The recipient was very happy with the quilt.

This is the quilt I received.


It was made by Lorraine Hofmann.  It is a Jan Patek patter and the fabrics were designed Jan Patek .

This was a fun Quilt Swap and I was really happy with what I received.

Well, back to visiting with family.  Hopefully the rain will stop so we can go out for a while.

Have a great weekend.

Hugs, Cathy

Looks like you had a very good swap.
Hope the weather clears so you can enjoy some out-and-about time, along with all the visiting. :)

Your little quilt is sweet and simple. I have made a couple of the Jan Patek quilt designs that Lorraine made for you. Also sweet and simple and a joy to stitch.
